BENEFITING: FRIENDS OF THE VIRGINIA BEACH MOUNTED POLICE
This gorgeous horse is Mick, a Percheron/Thoroughbred cross. Mick is the latest addition to the line up of equine officers of the Virginia Beach Mounted Patrol. Our police barn has been below the number of horses we need to adequately staff the unit for quite some time. Most of our current mounted unit horses have been gifts from local citizens. We are The Friends of the Virginia Beach Mounted Patrol. When Mick, a fully trained and healthy ten year old gelding became available from another mounted patrol unit, our support group leaped at the chance to purchase him for our officers. He is currently working nightly on the streets at the oceanfront and the officers are extremely pleased with his performance. Now, the challenge is to replace the funds ($7,000) depleted from our treasury. Any and all monetary help to do this and facilitate our continued support of this magnificent unit will be tremendously appreciated.
